The first book in the series, Sister Maus - A Small Tale of Sisters House in Salem, is a charming tale set in the historic 1785 Single Sisters House at Salem Academy and College on Salem Square. A story of sharing, mutual respect and gratitude, the book's watercolors and drawings capture the perspective of a tiny mouse living and working with the unmarried women and girls in the 1785 Moravian congregation town.
